There’re many web-based email providers that you can resort to, but having an email address with your very own personal domain will provide you with more credibility if you are running a company, for example, not to mention that with web-based services there are limitations on the maximum size of the attachments that you can receive or send. If you use an email service that supports the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, you will not have such problems and you will be able to use any program on your personal computer to check your mails, including Outlook, Thunderbird or Apple Mail. You can even set up an email account on your smartphone. The difference between the two email protocols is that with IMAP, an email message is displayed at your end, but remains on the server, whereas with POP3, the message is downloaded on your PC, unless you configure the program in such a way as to save a copy on the server.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to use any email client and any handheld or desktop device to view your email messages if you choose one of our Linux shared hosting. Our mail servers support both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can pick the one that fulfills your needs – you can download all emails on your personal computer or you can store the emails on the server in case you are running a firm and different employees need to get access to them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most popular desktop clients – Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird. You will just need to run the file on your PC and that email account will be set up automatically. If you’d like to use your phone, we have added exhaustive tutorials on how to create an email account on an iOS- or an Android-driven handheld device.
